Gosh Moroccan Spiced Bakes and Beetroot Burgers

Gosh Moroccan Spiced Bakes and Beetroot Burgers

It’s a double whammy – we’ve got not one, but TWO reviews from the Gosh range for you today. We’ve already tried some of their products in the past, but this is our first time trying something actually burger-shaped.

Two things, actually: first up, the Moroccan Spiced Bakes with Red Pepper and Apricot. While these technically make no claim towards being burgers, just look at them: they’re burgers. read more

Georgia’s Choice Mexican Bean Bakes

This week we found something completely new in the supermarket! That’s not a very regular occurrence these days, so it was pretty exciting (and this is probably why I don’t get invited to many dinner parties). These Georgia’s Choice Mexican bean bakes looked too good to ignore, and the chance to try a new brand was something I just couldn’t pass up. read more

Slug and Lettuce: Veggie Burger

Having lived just about across the road from one of their branches multiple times, I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to eat at a Slug and Lettuce. All the same, I’ve finally managed to get around to it, and you know what I just had to eat… Here’s the menu description: read more

Walrus and Carpenter Vegetable Burger

Walrus and Carpenter vegetable burger

I recently met up with a friend that I don’t see often. He works in London now, and when I’m up there, it’s normally only during the day, so our timetables clash. But recently, I realised that the meeting I had would finish around 5pm, leaving me free, so I fired off a text before heading in. Unfortunately, when I came out, I still hadn’t heard back, and his phone was off when I tried to call. Shrugging my shoulders, I started to head home – two connections on the Tube before getting to the station where I would be taking my final train. read more

Byron Grilled Portobello Mushroom and Goat’s Cheese Burger

Recently we headed to a branch of Byrons in the Strand area of London. They have two options for veggie burgers on the menu, so I opted for the “Grilled Portobello Mushroom and Goat’s Cheese Burger” served with “roasted red pepper, baby spinach, tomato, red onion and aioli” (taken from the menu). It’s a little disappointing that they don’t have a speciality veggie burger, or at least a few options. If they market themselves as a burger place, you might expect that they would provide alternatives. This is certainly the case in other burger joints that I’ve been to. read more

Gourmet Burger Kitchen Californian

The Gourmet Burger Kitchen has been on my wishlist ever since I started this blog, and we had the chance to try it out recently. I went for the Californian, which costs £8.75 and is described on the menu as follows: “Homemade & pan-fried bean patty, mature cheddar, avocado, smoked chilli mayo, crispy onions, relish, salad.” I also went for the sweet potato fries, and shared a side of onion rings. Along with this I ordered the peanut butter milkshake.

The Moat – Sweet Potato & Red Pepper Burger

Sweet Potato and Red Pepper Burger

Recently I ate at a pub in a small local village in Kent, Wrotham. The pub is called The Moat, and they serve a sweet potato and red pepper burger on their menu. Of course, I just had to try this out! It comes served with homemade coleslaw and skinny fries, and has a gherkin stuck on top as well, giving it quite a strange appearance. It is placed on a wooden board with a paper tray, which unfortunately is quite easy to tear once you start to eat the coleslaw. This is one of my pet hates at the moment as paper seems to be “in” with burgers – it just makes a mess, and I don’t want to eat it by accident. read more
